Resident Evil 7 biohazard Released

CapCom Unity announces the release of Resident Evil 7 biohazard for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A launch trailer celebrates the occasion with a look at the game, and here's word on what to expect:

The day is finally here. Resident Evil 7 biohazard is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC! Capcom has listened to what fans want from the Resident Evil franchise, and with RE7, you can experience the true fear that fans have come to expect from Resident Evil in the twisted corridors of a mansion in Dulvey, Louisiana. Check out the latest trailer right after the jump, and read on for more of what you can expect from RE7.

There are echoes of the series’ survival horror roots in Resident Evil 7 biohazard. Ethan Winters, searching for his missing wife, Mia, finds himself exploring a dilapidated plantation house in Louisiana, drawing parallels to Raccoon City’s S.T.A.R.S. team exploring an old mansion in the Arklay Mountains. You won’t have time to comment on the splendor of this mansion, though - unlike the S.T.A.R.S. team, Ethan is just an ordinary man in a terrifying situation. Before long, Ethan finds himself face to face with the Baker family, who nobody has heard from in several years. In fact, not all is well at the old Baker house at all; the entire mansion seems to be falling apart, and there’s something seriously wrong with the residents, too. The family is waiting for you in this house of horrors, and as you make your way through the mansion, you’ll have to make some hard decisions in classic survival horror fashion. Do you take your chances and fight back against the terrors that await you, or will you try to conserve your resources and run away? The members of the Baker family aren’t the only creatures lurking in the hallways, so you’ll have to plan ahead.

That’s not all we have for you today, though; two additional DLC packs will be available very soon! These packs are available in the Deluxe Edition version of the game as well as the Season Pass, and can also be purchased separately. The first pack, Banned Footage Vol. 1, will be available on PS4 starting on January 31st, and on all other platforms February 21st, for $9.99. This includes two pieces of “Banned Footage” as well as a new mode:

Bedroom: Figure out how to escape from a locked room - but don't let Marguerite Baker know you've been out of bed.

Nightmare: Fend off waves of enemies and survive until morning.

Extra Mode - Ethan Must Die: A tough-as-nails mode separate from the tapes and story of the main game. (Does not support PSVR)

In addition, a second pack, Banned Footage Vol. 2, will be available on PS4 starting February 14th, and on all other platforms starting February 21st, for $14.99. This pack includes two more tape scenarios and a new mode:

21: Gambe life and limb in a deadly game run by Lucas Baker.

Daughters: See what the Baker family was like before the tragic events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard.

Extra Mode - Jack's 55th Birthday: Race against the clock and feed Jack tons of food in this comical extra game mode separate from the tapes and story of the main game. (Does not support PSVR)

For those of you with PlayStation VR, you’ll be able to experience the entire game, from beginning to end, in a flexible, optional PSVR mode to play as much or as little as you want in immersive VR. For those of you with a 4K TV and a PS4 Pro, you’ll be able to enjoy full 4K resolution with incredibly crisp graphics and even more detailed textures. Plus, Resident Evil 7 biohazard will be able to take advantage of HDR on compatible TVs, no matter what model of PS4 you have. If you have an Xbox One or Xbox One S, you’ll be able to take advantage of HDR on compatible televisions as well. For PC players, there are a plethora of options to tweak your RE experience to your liking.

Do you have what it takes to survive? There’s only one way to find out. Resident Evil 7 biohazard is available now! Welcome to the family.

Late late in to the first act and through the second reminds me of FEAR and REvelations while leaning more towards the "current state" of the game where the story and monsters are beginning to show signs of a grandiose plot. The following act feels like we're back on track with the typical end location found in RE 1/2/3.

Really the only negative thing I have to say about it so far other than reusing the "turning-away over-the-face grab" a little too much.

Out of all gaming genres, removing progress saving in a horror game would make the experience even scarier.

I don't know, I'm not a fan of the limited saves mechanic, simply because real life interrupts too often it seems when I'm playing some game that tries to go 'old school.' Hopefully by the time I buy this, there are some patches or mods out to normalize saves, if it's still an issue.

The game would save your progress only when you exit to the main menu or Windows. But while playing you can't save.

Seems like real life is the true horror.

Oh yeah, loot crates and hard machine saves are back.

Hard machine saves? You mean the 'find the room with a typewriter' mechanic, and limited 'save ribbons,' or something else?

Also, every game needs crates or barrels to smash.

There are no save ribbons. You have to save at the typewriters but you can save as many times as you want. The typewriters are frequently enough that it's not a big problem. I would not let that deter you from the game.

I'd like to see so equal rights thrown out here; like a woman wearing a vagina hat or something.

Maybe you should see a doctor first. There might be an easier way that you can try much sooner.

Bought it last night and it's a real treat! There's a lot of nostalgia for those who have played the first title such as the location, atmosphere, and puzzles all while giving you a Texas Chainsaw: Body Horror Edition experience.

I'm not a big fan of where the series is but it almost feels like a spin-off. There are amazing little drops of information scattered about which call back to the first and yet you're dealing with present issues as well so it feels really good even for someone like me who gets butthurt any time someone talks about 4, 5 and 6.

I'm probably 10% done... maybe 15% with three hours of taking my sweet time and I don't have any desire to stop.

... the lip syncing is kind of really bad though and there are times where my FPS just dives to single frames for a moment then back to normal.

Looks pretty good; I'll definitely get it on sale, at the very least.

If this does reasonably well, I wonder if it'll make any other larger studios do VR focused games... seems like there are plenty of small VR games, but nothing approaching this kind of budget.
